UCI Health gastrointestinal and bariatric surgeon Dr. Marcelo Hinojosa and family medicine physician Dr. Regan Chan recently went live on Facebook to answer your questions about hernias.

Questions included:

  • What are the most common types of hernia? 
  • How are hernias treated?
  • What causes hernias?
  • Do hernias always need treatment?
  • Are there home remedies for treating hernia?

"A hernia is any organ or fatty tissue that protrudes through an opening or a weakness in the surrounding muscle or connective tissue," Hinojosa says. 

He also notes that they are extremely common. "What we have, you could almost consider it a hernia epidemic."
